one source and ESPO to provide a seamless Managed Service for Temporary Agency Resource

London Collaboration Contracts, our new partnership with Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO), means we now offer a quick, simple and highly competitive Managed Service for Temporary Agency Resource (MSTAR) recruitment service.

The one source MSTAR3 London Collaboration Contracts offers London Councils an easy route to partnering with a managed service provider who can take care of every aspect of their temporary and permanent staff recruitment.

The service will see each authority managed by a dedicated Customer and Relationship Management (CRSM) function, underpinned by market-leading technology platforms. Together delivering an enhanced, consistent and cohesive approach to contract management. One that results in optimum service and cost efficiencies for both individual councils and the London Collaboration as a whole.

Patrick Montgomery joins one source as CIO

We’re very pleased to announce the appointment of Patrick Montgomery as our new Chief Information Officer. He’ll bring a wealth of expertise to the challenge of leading the Technology & Innovation Directorate across one source and our partner councils.

Patrick has over 20 years’ experience in various roles across the IT and Digital space; most recently as Chief Information Officer for the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster City Council (a Bi-Borough Shared Service).

During his time there, Patrick successfully transformed the technology landscape of the two councils, which provides IT services to around 7,000 users, and digital services to more than 500,000 residents and businesses.

Outside work, he enjoys exploring London’s cultural and culinary attractions. He’s also a keen cyclist, hiker and runner – in fact, he ran the 2019 London Marathon.

We wish Patrick all the best in his new role, and look forward to welcoming him to the one source team in March!
